Tell us about your college’s new transfer scholarship for Phi Theta Kappa members.
The new PTK scholarship at Hunter College is for PTK members who have done exceptionally well at their previous institution. The $1,500 scholarship enables students to cover part of the cost of our tuition for two years of study at Hunter.
Why does your college feel it is important to offer a scholarship opportunity for members?
Each year Hunter College welcomes a new class of 5,500 new students, over 50 percent of whom are transfers. The diversity of students and their academic interest makes the transfer class exciting every year.
The PTK members have historically joined the Hunter Hawks in various clubs, became members of the Student Government Association, or gone on to research with faculty, thus the PTK scholarship is an opportunity to recognize the legacy of previous Hunter Hawks who came from PTK through a scholarship for new incoming students.
In your opinion, what is one of the most impressive things about your college?
Hunter College is truly a microcosm of New York City and the world. Students trace their backgrounds from over 100 different countries from around the world, making us one of the most diverse college settings in the country.
